Halfway To Doolin
Songs of the heart much older than I,
makes a man wander and not wonder why.
Land near the Shannon of heather and glen.
Searching for music and my dear old friends.

North to the wildwood and Sligo's dirt drone.
South to Killarney, O'Leary's old bones.
Mayfly and hook, fresh trout in a creel.
A lovely soft morning with dew on the fields

Hold on to memory lest we forget.
Ireland's a circle where two circles met.
When I hear north winds that sound like a reel
Halfway to Doolin. That's how I feel

Tommy and Michael and Kenneth and Paul,
Eileen and Evy. I met with them all.
Chowder and brown bread much laughter about.
Bring on the whisky, and bring on the stout.

On through the night the turf burns ablaze.
The fiddler is weary. The dancers are dazed.
Let's have more music! Strathespey or Reel.
Once more with feeling; Toe tap and heel


Yeats in a corner and Joyce just arrived.
O'Connor's been drinking. These ghosts are alive.
Who built the stone church so long ago?
Saint Patrick's parish? Could it be so?
